Gallery Talk: O'Keeffe with Rick Pudwell, Memphis Botanic Garden
01/20/2019, 2:00 PM to 3:00 PM
Memphis Brooks Museum of Art | Included with museum admission map
In this special gallery talk, Rick Pudwell, Director of Horticulture at Memphis Botanic Garden, will discuss the three classifications of plants in Hawaii: native plants, those brought to the islands by Polynesians, and the plants brought from around the world in more recent times. Though flowers like Hibiscus and Bird of Paradise – flowers featured in Georgia O’Keeffe: Visions of Hawai‘i – are commonly thought to be native to Hawaii, they actually fall into the latter category. Pudwell will also include living plant specimens to help illustrate his talk.
Included with museum admission. No reservations required; space is limited.
